The Geothermal Resources Council (GRC) is governed by a Board of Directors, elected by the general membership to 2-year terms. To provide continuity, half of the Board is elected every year. All GRC members are eligible for election to the Board of Directors.
The global GRC membership took part in the ballot in November, and the result was that three new members of the Board were elected:
Katherine Young: Senior energy analyst at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, Golden, Colorado, USA.
Maria Richards: Geothermal laboratory coordinator in the Huffington Department of Earth Sciences, Southern Methodist University (SMU), Dallas, Texas, USA.
Masami Nakagawa: Associate professor at Colorado School of Mines (CSM), Golden, Colorado, USA.
Katherine Young, Maria Richards and Masami Nakagawa join the seven other members who have been re-elected to the Board of Directors: Richard Campbell, James Lovekin, Joseph Moore, Louis Capuano III, Dennis Gilles, Roy Mink and Shigeto Yamada.
At the end of 2014, the GRC membership stands at over 1,450 from 49 different countries.
